|DISCIPLINARY LETTER from the Office of Bar Counsel with a certified copy of an order of the Supreme Court of Colorado suspending respondent from the practice of law for sixty days stayed upon completion of a two-year probationary period.
|ORDER Having received a certified copy of an order of the Supreme Court of Colorado suspending respondent from the practice of law, staying this suspension, and placing respondent on probation for two years by consent, it is, accordingly, pursuant to D.C. Bar Rule XI, Sec XI, Sec 11 (d), ORDERED that respondent show cause within thirty days why he should not be suspended from the practice of law for sixty days, all stayed during a two-year probationary period subject to the same terms as those imposed in Colorado. It is FURTHER ORDERED that Bar Counsel shall reply to respondent's response no later than fifteen days after service of the response. Alternatively, no later than fifteen days after respondent's response was due, Bar Counsel may object to the imposition of reciprocal discipline based upon the factors set forth in D.C. Bar Rule XI, Sec 11 (c). Bar Counsel shall provide the court with the relevant portions of the record of the proceeding in the other disciplining court, the staute and rules that governed it, and a short statement identifying all of the issues that the matter presents. It is FURTHER ORDERED that if Bar Counsel opposes the imposition of identical discipline, Bar Counsel shall (1) recommend appropriate non-identical discipline or (2) request that the matter be referred to the Board for its recommendation as to discipline. Respondent may reply within ten days after service of Bar Counsel's submission. It is FURTHER ORDERED that respondent's attention is drawn to the requirement of Rule XI, Sec 14 relating to suspended attorneys and to the provisions of Rule XI, Sec 16 (c) dealing with the timing of eligibility for reinstatement as related to compliance with Rule XI, Sec 14, including the filing of the required affidavit.
